- Shopping centre owner Hammerson said it would halt its share buyback programme ahead of the release of full-year results due in February. The company also confirmed that results were expected to meet market expectations.

As at 31 December, a total of £129m or 43% of the company’s buyback programme had been executed, Hammerson said.

The company's buyback programme was part of a reshaped strategy announced on 24 July 2018, targeting up to £300m of share buybacks over the twelve month period to July 2019.
